Dykes gathered in a kick at the goal line, broke a couple tackles and raced for the score and a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. He was untouched on an 88-yard return in the second quarter for a 28-10 halftime lead.
Mancuso finished with 280 yards passing and 95 on the ground with Fuller making eight catches for 161 yards. Will Knight had 101 yards rushing for Delaware.
